Fountain

E.J. Cobb's avatar E.J. Cobb

"Fountain" is a mixed-media installation inspired by the natural world. Specifically, my inspiration is a volcanic eruption, although the piece is created to be an abstract environment that allows the viewer to make their own connections to the natural world. The marks I make mimic anything from ash clouds to schools of fish, rain showers to swarms of bees, or even flocks of birds to leaves blowing in the breeze. The goal is for the viewer to feel surrounded, immersed and overwhelmed, thus creating a sense of awe.
